One of the most genuinely handsome young men, this painting in miniature has great appeal. Confident direct gaze, I feel as though I haven't captured him adequately in these images. Will probably send him back to photography. His image is brilliantly clear and crisp, and quite enthralling when you consider his face is only about 1", chin to hairline. The miniaturist artist has both signed and dated the painting, "Dagoty, 1837", which identifies our artist as well-listed 

PIERRE EDOUARD DAGOTY, born in Florence 1775 - died 1871 Bordeaux. The works are top quality, and you'll find many examples from Sotheby's, Christie's auction houses. Typically they bring $2000 and higher per portrait, plus a 20% 'hammer'. Ours is unidentified (sitter), and is housed in a locket-style miniature frame which is fitted with a 12k gold front that has a restoration at the top (see images). 

Very good to excellent condition for the painting, exquisitely crafted by noted artist of miniatures, it has sustained no damage in its 180 years. The frame is metal but with a 12k gold front panel which has a restoration at the top (see images). Painting is gouache on wafer, and has no cracks, chips, warp. Signature in lower right along the frame's edge. Noted artist.
